Motorola has patented the concept of an "electronic skin tattoo" for your throat, equipped with an "embedded microphone" and "a transceiver for enabling wireless communication." This futuristic tattoo would help you communicate with smartphones, personal computers or other "mobile communication devices."

Im constantly reading book, art books, topics, improving, learning anatomy muscles, then the next day learn something else. But few days later ive already forgot some important stuff, so i go back to re learn color, but then i forgot some part of anatomy, so i go back and study again that part of anatomy, but then i forgot about values, so i have to go and study that again, but then again forgot about colors so i have to go again and...............................................................Etc. Eternal spiral.

Let’s Spice it Up a Bit!
There is something in our human nature that always keeps us looking for that enigmatic “something more.”
No matter how much we enjoy something, we just know it could be a little bit better with the perfect small addition. Hence, our obsession with finding the perfect complementary spices to our favorite foods.
Spices have been a treasure for humanity since at least 2000 BCE. Spices were es
A little story...Wanted to share this story with you guys, and future creators:A little story...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
After getting out of a slump, I wanted to share this story of something I went through a few years back. Bit of a read, but thanks for sticking through it
As you know, Comic-Con is arriving and as I prepare for it, I grow more and more anticipated with anxiety/joy in regards to the re-release of Last Man Standing.
As long, challenging, and mind-opening the creation of LMS was, something really stuck with me.
Before I had created LMS, I wanted to work for WETA Workshop. To those that don't know them, they've created props, designs, sets, costumes, and more for The Lord of the Rings, Avatar, District-9, Elysium, The Hobbit and many more films.
I was obsessed and inspired with them. The creator, Richard Taylor was always a huge inspiration to me. After viewing supplements on the Extended Editions of The Lord of the Rings DVDS, I knew right there: I HAD TO WORK FOR THEM.

You May Say I'm An Artist...You May Say I'm An Artist...5 months ago in Art Features More Like This
I am haunted in this holiday season by the opening lines of Charles Dickens’s A Tale of Two Cities, his novel about a society 250 years ago coming apart in its seemingly irreconcilable divisions. Could it be these lines define where we have come to find ourselves today?
“It was the best of times,
it was the worst of times,
in the age of wisdom,
it was the age of foolishness,
it was the epoch of belief,
it was the epoch of incredulity,

Veteran's DayOn the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in the Year of Our Lord 1918 the guns of the Western Front fell silent. Today we set the date aside to honor those who have worn the uniform of the United States Armed Forces. They are a somewhat dying breed it seems. Less than one half of one percent of the population are currently serving, and less than ten percent have served in the past. The way we have treated vets after Vietnam was an atrocious betrayal by a self absorbed minority and the majority who were cowed into silence. After Gulf One that has changed, but there is still a large percentage, too large, who looks at those who serve a cause greater than themselves with disdain. I have come to realize that what these vermin think of our defenders does not matter. They stood when needed and said “Here I am, send me.”Veteran's Day2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Storage Areas or Twilight Zones?
Most basements and attics are part of the house, but not a part of the home.
Especially in childhood, these poorly-lighted areas are, at best, under a family’s occupation – but one can never trust that any spectral entities or spirits who might be there, abiding in the shadows, are ever fully loyal to the current family living in their home. Here’s a gallery of deviations to help you recall that first afternoon you eve
How beautiful do you have to be to be loved?A photographer like me who portrays beautiful women is sometimes accused of damaging people. Why? Because we raise the bar for everybody to an unhealthy level. We give wrong expectations of how you or a partner worthy of you are supposed to look. We use all the tricks to make the people in the pictures always look perfect and beautiful – how can a normal person keep up with this?How beautiful do you have to be to be loved?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, from my point of view the answer is simple, maybe too simple for you: you don't have to keep up with this. In a funny way I face the same problem as you, but from the other side: how can I keep up with you? You have not only your looks, you have your own unique way. You have your personality, your style. You have your way of walking and talking. You can make a real connection with somebody. You can touch them. You can make them feel your caress. You can make their heart pound.
How can I as a photographer keep up with this? I only have a stupid picture, how can I make someone's heart pound?
